WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND
The iProCon HCM 2008 conference is specifically targeted at senior managers and executives seeking
to achieve their strategic goals more effectively. With uncertainty surrounding the state of the economy, businesses are faced with a variety of questions that have a direct impact not only on their near-term financial results, but potentially on their very existence. Against this context, perhaps the only certainty is that all businesses must look increasingly closely at how they can improve delivery of their strategy. The conference promises to deliver fresh thinking on how a different view of human capital can help you to master challenges in a shrinking as well as an expanding market, and help you boost your own career.
The iProCon HCM 2008 Conference brings together business and thought leaders to discuss how best to leverage the key enablers of strategy: Change, Sourcing, Innovation, and People Strategy. Our speakers, from across the corporate and academic world, bring significant subject matter expertise as well as the practical grounding required to ensure you leave the conference with a clear idea of how to deliver your business strategy more effectively.
Scenarios that will directly be addressed at the conference include:
Cutting costs without eroding competitive advantage
When seeking to cut costs, you can either make changes across the board, or more specifically target areas that your customers and shareholders agree are not required. Sessions will help you determine
the source of your competitive advantage and put in place means to grow it rapidly when the time comes.
Change is needed but are unsure where to
Identifying the need to change is often the easy part. Does your organisation have the capability and capacity to change in the direction you want? How can you overcome organisational inertia to make the change happen? Several speakers at the conference will help you consider these questions with greater clarity.
Increase ROI on innovation investment
With innovation budgets under scrutiny, it is important to clearly articulate the value of every Â£ of investment into innovation. The conference will show you how to overcome classic barriers to innovation excellence, and hence deliver a more efficient innovation capability.
Prepare for difficult times ahead
Your industry may already be facing exceptionally difficult times. Benefit from insight into how you can really improve your contingency planning by taking into account the human factors that occur during times of crisis.
Increase the efficiency and effectiveness of your workforce
Achieving results with limited resources is what makes great managers stand out from the crowd. Various sessions at the conference will identify specific ways you can increase the effectiveness of your workforce and hence deliver more, without blowing the budget along the way.
With numbers limited to improve networking opportunities, the iProCon HCM 2008 Conference promises to deliver leading edge thought and practical advice, all aimed at helping you realise your business strategy more effectively.
